Want to see a Nobel laureate saying I did a mistake?

If you have read Kahneman’s “Thinking Fast and Slow” you should be interested in reading this blog post: Reconstruction of a Train Wreck: How Priming Research Went off the Rails...

And, even more interesting, Kahneman’s response to it.

It is not that often to read a Nobel laureate something like "This was simply an error: I knew all I needed to know to moderate my enthusiasm for the surprising and elegant findings that I cited, but I did not think it through."

Hats off!!

What does it mean to love someone?

To love is "to be generous in the interpretation of the behavior of another person"
Alain the Botton in this video

The video below is a better version of the same talk. I found it very interesting.

I also recommend the novel he mentions in the video, The Course of Love.

Finally I recommend his YouTube channel, The School of Life full of thought provoking videos.

Take care
